Well I saw an add in the paper for a Ruger Blackhawk in .41 Mag w/ 6.5" bbl. I didn't have the cash but I had a Taurus tracker in a .357 Mag w/4" ported barrel. So I called the guy and talked it over with him and I ended up bringing the Ruger home after a little dealing. I swapped him my 357, 450 Federal small pistol mag primers, 1/4 pound of H-110, 80 loaded rounds of 158g laser cast, and about 300 rounds of brass. In return, I got the Ruger 41 mag, a box of 210g PMC factory ammo and 100 215g cast bullets. All in all I am happy since I can put a scope on this one and its a little more gun for deer and bear which is obviously better then the 357. Anyways, I plan on putting a Bushnell 2-6x32 scope on it and loading up some 210g XTP's. Any preference for powder/bullets in the 41?? Whats a good guideline for accuracy from this particular pistol?? Any advice for a good set of base/rings? I shot it about 25 times tonight and it did kick a bit harder then the 357 but not that bad. Took a while to get use to the single action, but I think I got it down now. Not much of a pistol guy so go easy on me, lol. Thanks for any and all help guys.
